Steve Hogan, Director of Planning & Boundaries, presented an initial report of boundary study proposals. Three members of the public addressed the board concerning the Walker Lane Olympus/Cottonwood boundary study. The board made a motion to remove the Walker Lane Olympus/Cottonwood boundary study from the list. The other studies will continue with open house meetings in the fall.
Mitch Robison, Director of Budget Development, presented the proposed FY 2017-2018 budget to the board. The budget has been available on the district’s website since June 8 to provide the public an opportunity to view and comment.
